Excerpt from Burnett Lectures, on Light: Second Course, on Light as a Means of Investigation, Delivered at Aberdeen in December, 1884

In one sense of course this would include nearly every investigation that we can carry on; for in nearly every case we make use of our eyes, and without light they would be of no avail. But it is obvious that it cannot be in this comprehensive sense that the title of the present course is meant to be taken. The investigations actually intended are those in which the properties of light in their re lation to ponderable matter enable us to ascertain something regarding the nature or the condition of that ponderable matter. Even as thus restricted the subject remains a wide one, branching out into other' departments of science, especially' chemistry, miner alogy and astronomy.
